Speaking to Lusa, the councillor for the Economy, Structural Funds and Urbanism of Lourinhã City Council, João Serra, said that the urban requalification works and the dinosaur route have been concluded, including the installation of the dinosaur models.

The project aims to "improve the quality of life of residents, attract new residents and tourists and boost local trade", said the mayor.

“We wanted to reclassify the urban space alongside dinosaurs to attract people”, he said.

The Urban Dinosaur Exhibition is a three-kilometre route through Lourinhã, accessible to all, which tourists can follow to observe life-size models of dinosaurs, such as the “Lourinhanhosaurus” and the “Dinheirosaurus”, species whose first fossils were discovered in the county, or the “Tyrannosaurus Rex”.

Next to each dinosaur there are interpretive plaques with information in Portuguese, English and Braille.

Tourists can complement the visit with information from audio guides available on the website of the Câmara da Lourinhã showurbanadinossauros.cm-lourinha.pt.

The project was financed by community funds.
